  • Skin needling is highly cost-effective and can even be done on a DIY basis
  • Anyone that undergoes microneedling can resume their regular activities within a day or two.
  • Microneedling does not create any demarcation between the portions of skin that were punctured and the portions that were untreated. thus, you can treat scarred areas on the skin without worrying about blending.

How often can I go under the needle?

There is really no limit to the number of micro-needling treatments you can undergo during your lifetime. When targeting a specific condition, the number of procedures would depend on the condition you want to treat. For scars or stretch marks, you may need about 4-5 procedures to achieve excellent results. If you’re targeting wrinkles or sagging skin, you may not need to go under the needle more than thrice a year.

Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. It is essentially a minimally-invasive technique of facial rejuvenation that aims to exploit the healing effects of collagen on the skin. The microneedling process employs a device with fine needles to create controlled tissue damage. The injury to the skin tissues stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two substances with powerful skin healing properties. The treatment has actually been around for many decades and dermatologists with the know-how have used it to provide solutions to their clients’ skin problems. The recent surge in popularity may be attributed to the availability of personal microneedling devices that can be used at home, and of course, the influence of social media.

How does microneedling work? the science behind microneedling

When the outermost layer of the skin is punctured, the body is triggered to repair the micro-injury. In response, the body produces collagen and elastic in order to fill the micro wounds. Asides the production of these compounds, the body also produces new capillaries. Collagen has been scientifically proven to help maintain the integrity of the skin. In fact, the skin wrinkling that commonly occurs with aging is thought to be caused by a reduction in the body’s collagen production. The increased production of collagen stimulated by microneedling would lead to skin rejuvenation and reduction of dark spots and scars.

Thing is, the scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone won’t be there if your skin had enough collagen. Microneedling ensures your body produces collagen at the site where it is needed. Another obvious advantage to microneedling is that it stimulates the production of normal tissue collagen. This is different from scar collagen that the body produces to cover large wounds or burns. That is why it is important to ensure that the injuries induced on the skin are only minor injuries and do not go beyond the outer layer of the skin.
